Do you have access or have you seen Henrietta Bromwell's THE BROMWELL GENEALOGY? She lists Esther as "Esther M.M.". Could the second "M." be for Melissa. Possibly it is also a typo. Henrietta states that Esther was b. 10 Jan 1847; m. Gabriel Howe who died and then she m. Isaac Freeman. She had one child, Hallie, who died. Henrietta lists no other children for the Rev. Jacob Lowe Bromwell except the ones listed in the 1850 Census and she seems to have been quite accurate in other things. Are you a Bromwell descendant?
